DVD's you wish had a commentary?

especially by the director.

i just watched "Deathproof", "Kill Bill" (Vol. 1 & 2) and really wish these had commentaries by QT. Especially, on KB2, i was sitting there just wondering what he was thinking on certain things and even changed the audio just in case, but alas nothing.

i realy wish these 3 had them. of course we might get them in the future, but that is a whole nother headache and thread.

what DVD releases do you really wish had an audio commentary by anyone knowledgable on the film and would most likely cause more enjoyment of the film??

Yes. The reason was it was recorded separately... I think because Warner didn't want Aronofsky's commentary in the DVD.

I'd love to hear a Scorsese track on Taxi Driver (yes, I realize it's on the Criterion LD).

On the top of my head Zapped. I'm glad it finally came out on DVD, however I would love to hear commentary on it.

I hate the commentaries that are just cut & pasted from normal interviews, like Tarantino's "commentary" on True Romance.

Departed really needs one
I'm still waiting for a nice special edition for Jurassic Park. Be nice to have a commentary with Spielberg and the cast. Jaws is another one.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Would be great to get a Steve Martin and/or John Hughes commentary. I suspect, now, that it would be a difficult commentary for Steve Martin to get through.

Steve Martin and John Candy would've been killer, but alas...

I have that LD and can confirm that it's an awesome track. Truly a pity it didn't make it onto the new CE DVD.

I'm still sad that John Ritter died just before Three's Company got put onto DVD. His commentaries on those episodes would have been priceless.
